Maybe I'm missing something, but I don't understand how your MINGW
build became so big... I use 2.0-beta17 (hope the version difference
does not cause the grow) and the UPXed binaries dynamically linked to
the UPXed DLLs. Sizes in bytes are as follows:

 33,280  openvpn-gui.exe
150,528  openvpn.exe
116,736  openssl.exe
417,792  libeay32.dll
 77,824  libssl32.dll

I looked back at the files I posted. the file stripped.mingw was actually the unstripped UPX version. Stripping and then compressing the mingw build yields comparable file sizes making the ICL build the largest of the UPX'd files. Considering the performance difference I am seeing, it is worth the extra 60K. Below are the new results. These files are also available for download at http://www.digital-z.net/openvpn if anyone wants to run some performance tests.
